IN THE GALLERY ROOM:  Cottages  – An artist’s subject that never goes out of style for decorating and setting a warm tone in our homes!  Like a pen and ink twist on a Thomas Kincaid style charmer, or a favorite classic black and white film,  there’s just something that takes us into  cottages like these… inviting as the cozy arms of a favorite chair!

  • Perfect for miniatures nestled in a bookcase
  • Great as an accent picture on a side wall, or hanging as a statement over a mantlepiece
  • Reminiscent of sunny beach days at the cottage, or a dream of living in an England storybook home
  • Representation of simple joys and family, cozy spots in the home
  • Great as gift for yourself or a friend

Little White House in Ada

“Tea in The Cottage Garden on Bronson Lane”

I created this one from a photo of an actual, tiny 1852 Victorian  in a nearby town, situated aside an old stone church founded in 1870.  (You can see my drawing of that quaint country church here:  Churches .)  The storybook feel of it’s dollhouse size captured me, inspiring me to create a spring in bloom  scene around it, adding touches of pink cast from the blossoms across the door window… These cafe chairs were outside in the photo, which led to the tea table in the garden…

This is for all the cottage lovers out there…but I could also see it brightening up a little girl’s room with a bit of story on the walls! 🙂

[Oh, I love this one.  Mm…I can almost feel myself walking with the figures there,  breathing in the salt air in this, possibly because it reminds me of  trips I’ve taken to Carmel, California as well as an English scene I’ve only read of in books…]

[When I increased the size of the photo I used as my drawing model, I found this cottage actually has what looks like a thatched roof made of lavender!  I can imagine driving  over rolling emerald hills and coming upon this charming scene – like a dream…  🙂  Even a little secret garden gate hidden behind the bench…]
